Not that many liberals are criticizing Melania, in my experience. I think you're making a mountain out of a mole hill, as the saying goes, in order to change the conversation about why so many people dislike Trump
. But I know that some apparent "liberals" -- if that's what they are -- have in fact criticized Melania. And as a democratic socialist who opposes Donald T, I think s that's pretty despicable.
Trump haters who condemn Melania are a lot like Obama haters who condemned Michelle Obama when she was First Lady. It's an indirect way of trying to discredit the President, whoever the President is at the moment.
This is dishonorable politics, IMO, and psychologically manipulative, and also unfair to the First Ladies who are being attacked. It's generally bad for the country as well, because you're trying to turn important debates and disagreements over actual government policies into the kind of nasty popularity contest that all too many of us had to endure in high school. To hell with that kind of school yard personality assassination.
If you hate Trump -- or if you're one of those who hated Barack Obama - or if you hate ANY president - for the sake of decency, be honest with the voters and go after the actual President. Don't use his family as a proxy target.
